15 Years, 50,000 Families; Irving Oil Marks a Milestone Year for Fuel the Care



SAINT JOHN, NB, Oct. 3, 2017 /CNW/ - This year, Irving Oil is celebrating 15 years of Fuel the Care, and on October 3rd, employees will be out at select gas stations to celebrate with customers.

Working with a network of seven partner hospitals in Atlantic Canada, Quebec and New England, Fuel the Care has supported more than 50,000 families and caregivers who need to travel frequently to access medical care for their child.

Fuel the Care was developed to provide relief to families during a stressful time. Multiple hospital trips, often from far distances, time away from family and missing days of work increase the challenges families face. Fuel the Care offers assistance so parents can focus on what's most important - being together and helping their children. 

"Our customers' support allows us to help thousands of families every year with Fuel the Care," says Sarah Irving, Executive Vice President and Chief Brand Officer for Irving Oil. "We are very thankful for their support in helping to make a difference for families in our local communities." 

To express thanks to customers for their support, hundreds of Irving Oil team members will be pumping gas, washing windshields and raising awareness about the Fuel the Care program on October 3rd. Celebrations are taking place at over 30 Irving Oil retail locations across Atlantic Canada, New England and Quebec.
